i wanna live like we lived in the summer.

I am SO glad to have finished my exams!! I have so much planned for this summer and so much to share with you!! After nine and a half hours of exams I am thoroughly exhausted and can't wait to relax. But unfortunately for me I am absolutely terrible at relaxing, so the new fews weeks are going to be spent busybusybust with lots of fun!!

First of all I have a lot of work experience planned for the summer which I can't wait for. Over the next few weeks I will be starting as a new writer over at The Fashion Buzz. I will be writing two articles a week on Menswear and it will be my first paid writing experience!! I'm very excited; menswear is so completely out of my comfort zone but I'm always looking for new opportunities to expand my repoitoire and try something new.

Secondly, things are getting very exciting over at Student Fashion Blog; I'm going to be writing much for frequently over there and next Monday I'm going to London to cover Graduate Fashion Week for them!! I'm really excited about all the ideas Michael has planned for the site and I can't wait to go be a real fashion reporter!! I just need to find something to wear...

I will also soon be launching my new blog No Longer Next Door; my year abroad blog. I've set up the domain but I just need to do some more work on it before I launch it. That will be a much more personal, journal-like day to day blog, but I'll be keeping GNDF for all my fashion musings and outfit posts from across the pond.

I've also been lucky enough to get work experience at a magazine that is soon to be launched in my local area. I've been asked to conduct a number of interviews of over summer I could get my name in actual real print!! It's all happened very quickly but it's all very exciting!! I also have two weeks work experience at a silk works over summer to get a bit of an experience as to what it's like on the other side of the fashion wall.

Finally, I have lots of new updates and ideas for girlnextdoorfashion. I promise I'll go back to updating as many days as possible, though I'm still very busy with part-time jobs and sorting things out for summer. I'm so grateful to all the people who have supported me and all my readers. I would never have gained all the work experience and opportunities I have done, if it wasn't for the support and confidence my readers have given me. The success of this blog so far has really made me think, wow, maybe I could really make it as a journalist. So, watch this space, and I'll keep you updated on what's going to be happening over here and at my other blogs. We have a couple of guests posts coming up and I will be blogger of the month on a couple of other blogs, so keep your eye on girlnextdoorfashion!!

Hope you're having a wonderful summer if your exams are finally over, and if not, good luck for your last few exams!!
